    On Saturday, August 14, 2021, from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., Waco ISD will host the 9th Annual Waco ISD Family Fest at two sites: Waco High School and University High School.

    2021-2022 Registration

    Family Fest is one more chance to ensure you child is registered for the 2021-2022 school year. Remember, Waco ISD will return to full-time, in-person instruction this school year, and we will not be offering remote instruction. We encourage you to register your students before Family Fest, and you can start the registration process by visiting wacoisd.org/register.

    This year, if you registered for WACO ISD before Family Fest, or if you register at Family Fest, you will be presented with a voucher for one FREE backpack stocked with school supplies

    Parents registering their children at Family Fest can then take the proof of registration to the booth/table of the school in which a student is enrolled and receive the voucher for a backpack (after visiting with the staff, of course!).

    For students who have registered prior to Family Fest, campus personnel will verify and provide backpack vouchers.

    All vouchers must be redeemed for backpacks at the Family Fest location for your child's school.

    • Trojan Feeder students must attend the UHS Fest.
    • Lion Feeder students must attend the WHS Fest.

    As with the previous Family Fest events, the goals for this back to school event focus on:

    • Building relationships with our families and boosting parent involvement;
    • Providing information and education on school and community resources;
    • Offering health screenings and immunizations;
    • Engaging families in fun learning activities; and
    • Getting everyone ready for a new school year.
